nadir

Here is my best explanation:

'all-time low' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'in florida numbers receding' is the subsidiary indication.

'in' indicates a hidden word.

'receding' says the letters should be written in reverse.

'ridan' is hidden within 'florida numbers'.

'ridan' backwards is 'nadir'.
